My doctor recomended soaking in a warm bath, and then aiming my blow dryer down there. The heat and the warm air helped, and i didn't use toilet paper again until after my 6 week check up. Until then it was all the squeezy bottle. He also perscribed some pain killers that he said would be fine for a nursing mommy. But then my little one slept for almost 18 hours (i had to wake him up to make him eat) so i knocked that out and went back to my advil. Hope you feel better soon!
